Here’s 5 tracks as chosen by Brazil-born, Melbourne-based producer, rapper, beat-maker and radio presenter Walla C, ahead of publication of our extended interview.
Great work with synths and warm sounds. Really love the collective entirety of the track’s sound. Hard to believe it’s a collaboration.
Tall Black Guy – The Motor Is Running
Super creative drums. Love how he uses vocals (beatbox) all the way through this track. Tall Black Guy has been an influence on me since I first heard “Time”. This song here also inspires me to understand song progression a bit deeper.
Kiefer – U R What U Repeatedly Do
My morning mantra is Kiefer. Jazz beats with a touch of lo-fi. It’s so fresh to hear an instrumental beat with an amazingly played real piano rather than a sample. Still love good chop sample on the drums beat.
Slakah The Beatchild – Byram’s Groove (Cut a Rug)
This is the producer I’ve been listening to for over the last month now. This is the first track I found on Spotify and I love how all the elements on this track are organic. There’s a nostalgic feeling to this particular song but it still holds the hip-hop vibe.
Azymuth – Un Amigo – A Friend
Forever my heroes. My favourite song from Azymuth that’s taken from my favourite album, Outubro. The whole song is amazing. Brazilian rhythms fused with jazz. This group is a timeless inspiration.
